    Battery life is very subjective to what you do on the phone.

    It's hard to measure battery life from device to device - even if it's comparing two devices of the same kind, like two Pixel 2 XL's - as those two phones would belong to two different users with varying usage patterns. Are you trying to choose between those two devices?

    So, as others have said it's subjective phone to phone. However I think when you are the same subject you can compare. I went from an S7 to a G6 to the Pixel 2 in the last 15 months. The Pixel 2 outlasts all of them for me, I'm using most of the same apps, maybe a couple more actually than I did 15 months ago with the S7.

    The thing with the S7 was I never trusted it under 50% if I had to be out for a few hours as it would always eat the battery if I used it not. The G6 was better but I have no worries with the Pixel 2.

    Right now I'm at 41% at 9pm and haven't charged all day. I always had to top up every Samsung phone I had mid afternoon. So for me, no question you should see an improvement.

    My s7 plus was decent at the time
    The iPhone x ,pixel xl2 ,s8plus,9plus are pretty much on par with each other with the 1+6 slightly better then the rest don't forget the s7 don't have the optimization of the newer phones

    Maybe but I don't think we are that far advanced that it isn't worth comparing. Maybe it's not apples to apples but it's close. The S7 is an apple that isn't fully ripe yet.

    One plus 6 is the closest you'll get.

    In my opinion after using these phones it looks like the newer phones have a clear advantage...the s7plus I got what like 3 So with 15 hours
    The newer phones I constantly get 5-6 Sot with anywhere 24 - 36 hours same apps and same pattern

    The only phone I trust at the moment to go anywhere anytime is the s8plus or s9plus due to not having a charger if it happens I could use there ultra battery saving mode which has happened to me

    For the first time, I'm actually dreading upgrade to the next version of Android (historically I'd already have P on my Pixel 2 XL right now). I use Substratum overlays to black out my phone, and they aren't going to work on P. Good to hear of something to etnice me.

    Mine used to be, too, until DP 4. Now my 2 XL's standby battery stats are no better than my old Nexus 6's. And a factory reset did nothing to change that.

    There's an outside chance that Substratum may work on P IFF you're willing to root and IFF Google doesn't make it their mission to block Substratum at every turn.

    Nope, Google has its launcher, Samsung has their own. But Samsung phones come loaded with bloatware which consume quite some battery

    I don't know but the Pixel 2XL has been incredible for me and it's going on 9 months. Usually at 9 months I start to notice degradation the way I use a phone.

    I believe you but there has to be a logical explanation.

    I've used both and I can say that the Pixel offers much better battery life

    Would you say it's better than Samsung? I've noticed Samsung phones freeze often too. And battery life suck ish.

    You rationalists and yer explanations! I tell ya.

    Actually it took a while, but the 2 XL is slowly starting to behave itself again and get back to the same kind of battery usage I was seeing on DP 3. I guess it takes time for Adaptive Battery (or whatever) to rebuild a profile and slap some sense into hyperactive apps.
